Diamine Indigo

Manufacturers since 1864, Diamine Inks relocated to this purpose built ‘state of the art’ factory in Liverpool in 1925, where they successfully carried on using the traditional methods and formulas for ink production. Over the years the company has changed hands and are now located close to the world famous Aintree Race Course

Diamine Indigo isn’t indigo but, apart from this minor detail, it’s pretty decent ink that performs well even on crappy Moleskine paper. It doesn’t cause any feathering or blledthrough. It feels a little dry and lubrication is, for me, less than average. The appearance of this ionk may shift depending on pens and papers you use. Frankly I find this color easy on the eyes but slightly boring.
